14th June: Fred in fashion, talking wireless & bicycles...

14 Mon. Cool, cloudy morning with distant thunder, finer warm afternoon, distant thunder in evening. Leonard Conley called in morning, also John Child, we talked wireless & bicycles. In afternoon bought a light coloured tweed coat and a pair of light grey chalk striped trousers, oh, and a pair of braces at the new mans’ shop at the Chase Station: total price £5.4.11. Douglas Govey called with his motor-driven model aeroplane. It has a small diesel engine and flies on a twin control line which can be made to operate the elevators. He had just flown it on Cannon Hill Common but had broken the propeller.
